Meet Anissa

Meet Anissa

You know you are going to be good friends when your new relationship is founded on vampires.  Why?  Well, because vamps are where it’s at, yo!

I met Anissa in Room 704.  The original Room 704 at Blissdom09.  There she sat, on the edge of the bed, all busty and beautiful.  I had just thrown back some drink that VDog-the-Cracker gave me, I was tired, a little punchy, and I don’t know how it happened but someone said something about Twilight.

Anissa was talking about Edward and next thing I knew I was standing behind her.

I whispered, “Say it.”

Nothing.

“Say it,” I demanded.

“Vampire.” she said in her best Kristen Stewart impersonation with a face that even resembled Kristen Stewart’s Oh-My-God-Someone-Farted-in-Here-Face.

We busted out laughing.

And that was it.  Anissa and I were bonded forever.

I’m thrilled that our relationship has gone above and beyond vampires.  Though, if she’d be willing to pretend she was Bella, I’d be willing to don some fangs and bite her on the neck, all rough and shit.

In all seriousness… I am honored that Anissa asked me to be part of her new, awesome project.

It’s a site called Aiming Low.   Here’s what it’s about:

It’s not about the failure to attain perfection….it’s about understanding that perfection is not only over-rated, it’s a big fat whopping lie-burger with cheese…and fries…and onions.

We are a group of women/moms/bloggers/friends/writers that believe that there’s no shame in serving mac and cheese for dinner three nights in a row, Febreeze was created to make a questionably clean shirt smell ready-to-walk-out-the-door-fresh and that slack isn’t a way of life…it’s an art.

Meet Aiming Low
(not all, but in good Aiming Low form I can’t possibly find everyone’s picture to put up here
)

Anissa and AL Girls:  I look forward to aiming low with you,
but really we’ll be aiming high.  Because we are destined for greatness.
Believe that!


We Are Like Bricks

With Each Brick Laid

When I saw this picture, that I took while on the Blissdom Photowalk in Downtown Nashville, after editing all of the Blissdom’09 pictures, I instantly thought of all the women and men that I met and the bonds that have been formed as a result of coming together.

Various bloggers from various blogging circles (or not) came together, but from what I observed everyone was made to feel welcomed and united. It was a great thing to witness.   Every one of us unique in our own rite, just like the bricks of a building.

Together they are strong and sturdy.
Together they are beautiful and they contribute to a greater good.
Together they make up so much more than one little brick standing alone.

Here are all the beautiful bricks of Blissdom 2009 (and if you aren’t on this list, let me know!):

Blissful Moments

At the very beginning I captured this stellar smile; that right there should have told me how the weekend would go.

02_06_2009IMG_0054

I took pictures of beautiful mamas and their precious babes.

02_06_2009IMG_0146copy

I watched phenomenal women think and create.

02_06_2009IMG_0220

I saw pride beam out of every single pore.

02_06_2009IMG_0185

And I caught others catching a glimpse of me in action.

02_06_2009IMG_0263

I drooled over boots and shoes of all colors, shapes, sizes, and styles.

IMG_0803

I asked questions and got answers.

IMG_0837

I watched a blissful blaze of dancing.

IMG_1099

And that same first smile that I saw, early on, the first day?  I watched her in her glory, singing her lungs out, with a good old redneck woman.   HELL YEAH!
